A populist candidate, promising to return the country to greatness, becomes president of the United States, and then all hell breaks loose in It Can’t Happen Here, a new play based on Sinclair Lewis’ eerily prescient 1935 novel, adapted for the stage by Tony Taccone and Bennett S. Cohen. A cautionary dark satire about the fragility of democracy in the land of liberty, It Can’t Happen Here follows a liberal, middle-class newspaper editor from Vermont who witnesses the rise of an unlikely candidate to the Presidency, but trusts the system will fix itself—until it all comes crumbling down. Sinclair Lewis’ 1935 novel examines what brings a citizenry to the point of sacrificing its own freedom and how a courageous few can coalesce and resist.WHEN (press opening: Saturday, November 4) Thursdays 7:30pmFridays & Saturdays 8pm Sundays 2pm WHERE:         Lohman Theatre, on the Foothill College Campus (at the bottom of the hill), 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills.

THE MARSH SAN FRANCISCO ADDS NOVEMBER PERFORMANCES OF NOT A GENUINE BLACK MANWritten and Performed by Brian CopelandDeveloped by David Ford and Brian Copeland Directed by David Ford November 4-18, 2017 5pm Saturdays ) – The Marsh San Francisco announces Not a Genuine Black Man, the longest running solo show in San Francisco theater history by award-winning actor, playwright, and talk show host Brian Copeland, will extend with performances in November at The Marsh due to popular demand. This funny, honest, and harrowing piece recounts the struggles Copeland faced growing up in what was declared one of the most racist suburbs in America. Says Copeland, “In the current political climate, empathy seems to be a lost commodity. By showing people the world through the eyes of a bullied and lonely little African-American boy, I hope they will develop compassion for the demonized ‘other.’” The San Francisco Chronicle recently wrote of the solo show, “relentlessly introspective and disarmingly honest, Copeland takes apart the false notion that black masculinity is some monolithic concept, in a way that has continued, unfortunately, to be relevant long after the show’s 2004 premiere.” Not a Genuine Black Man will play November 4-18, 2017 with performances 5pm Saturdays at The Marsh San Francisco, 1062 Valencia St., San Francisco. For tickets ($25-$35 sliding scale, $55-$100 reserved), the public may visit www.themarsh.org or call The Marsh box office at 415-282-3055 (open 1-4pm, Monday through Friday).

Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest is the classically trivial Comedy for Serious People. Still having a startling social relevance, it is a farcical commentary in which the protagonists prefer live as fictitious personae to escape their burdensome social obligations. Playing upon the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the contempt with which the characters treat institutions of class, marriage and material wealth, as well as its rather savage satire of Victorian ways.

Aurora Theatre Company continues its 26th season with the Bay Area premiere of THE ROYALE by Marco Ramirez, award-winning writer of the hit TV series (Orange Is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy). It’s 1905, and Jay “The Sport” Jackson is ready to take on both the current heavyweight champion and the entrenched discrimination of the Jim Crow era—but is America ready for him? Inspired by the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion, the play uses rhythmic and ingenious staging. Ramirez’s contenders never physically engage in the ring; instead it’s “The Sport’s” internal struggle that delivers a sharp and surprising punch.The tightly constructed, viscerally theatrical tale has had acclaimed productions in New York, London, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times says THE ROYALE’S “lively manner of telling reanimates this breakthrough saga for a new generation.” Variety called THE ROYALE “A gripping, vivid coup de theatre.” Darryl V. Jones directs. Featuring Calvin M. Thompson (Law & Order, The Barrow Group), Satchel André (American Stage), Tim Kniffin (Aurora’s Trouble in Mind, The Arsonists), Donald E.

PEAR THEATRE PRESENTS “An Enemy of the People”by Henrik Ibsen, adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz OIt run to– November 12, 2017– Pear Theatre examines the clashes and conflicts of society and politics with Henrik Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People,” adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. When a town’s economic future is at stake, its leader would rather vilify a good man and risk harm to its own citizens than do the right thing. “An Enemy of the People” is directed by Ray Renati, and previews on October 19. Press and Opening Night is Friday, October 20, followed by a champagne gala. The show runs Thursdays through Sundays, through November 12. All performances are held at the Pear Theatre, 1110 La Avenida St., Mountain View. Tickets ($15-$35) can be purchased by visiting www.thepear.org or calling (650) 254-1148. WHAT: Written in 1882, Henrik Ibsen’s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE still rings disturbingly true: the story of a altruistic man undermined by people concerned with profit. Dr. Stockmann has discovered serious contamination in the town’s new bathing complex, an enterprise which had promised to revitalize the town economy. Unwilling to undertake the expense of correction, however, the town mayor — his own brother — accuses Stockmann of fabricating the story to enrich himself, and manages to turn most of the town’s population against the doctor and his family. Ibsen examines the moral dilemmas inherent in whistleblowing, as well as the sometimes ephemeral nature of truth itself. Ray Renati directs this classic, in a recent adaptation by Rebecca Lenkiewicz. WHEN: Previews: Thursday, October 19, 2017 Press Opening: Friday, October 20, 2017 Closes: Sunday, November 12, 2017 Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays: 8:00 PM; Sundays: 2:00 PM WHERE: Pear Theatre, 1110 La Avenida St., Mountain View TICKETS: $15 (Previews) – $35; savings available for seniors & students.

Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest is the classically trivial Comedy for Serious People. Still having a startling social relevance, it is a farcical commentary in which the protagonists prefer live as fictitious personae to escape their burdensome social obligations. Playing upon the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the contempt with which the characters treat institutions of class, marriage and material wealth, as well as its rather savage satire of Victorian ways.
